February 20, 1954

An "absolutely authentic account of the grazing land battles of the sheep and cattle wars of the early west," pitting sheep rancher Droopy against a cattle ranching wolf.

A legendary land known for its scorching hot deserts, red rock canyon lands, giant snow-capped mountains and rugged shorelines. Welcome to America’s Wild West, home to a vibrant cast of tricksters, pioneers and outlaws, from the shrewd coyote to the feisty hummingbird, the mighty blue whale to the spirited mustang.

It reveals how these three radically different worlds were formed, the forces that shape them today and how life has found brave and enterprising ways to survive.

The Sky on Location

September 15, 1983

A personal meditation on the landscape of the American West that tracks the ruling conception in nature in the 19th and 20th centuries from the pioneers through the instamatic tourists, at the same time that it obsessively follows the four seasons. The elemental vicissitudes of the weather, the exact moment of the day, the colour of the light and the soil and the trees form an acute visual record of the constantly changing mood of the landscape. The film successfully attempts, with quiet, passionate, almost single-minded firmness, to confront us as nakedly as possible with our cultural inability to see nature whole, without preconceptions.
